    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Steak n Shake (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I was a little irked that the man who actually contacted me for the interview wasn't there for the interview and waited about 15 minutes for someone to speak to me but the people who came to speak to me were very polite, friendly and informative and I was asked back for a second interview with the man who initially contacted me so fingers crossed!

    Food Prep Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fleming Island, FL
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Steak n Shake (Fleming Island, FL) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Horrible unorganized management. They had 8 people show up for interviews, told us that they did not realize how many were coming in. Sent most home telling them they would follow up with a phone call. This is what you want a prospective new employee's first impression of a business? Who would want their first job to be with a group (?) of managers who operate like they are a bunch of monkeys fornicating a football?

    Cook Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Steak n Shake (Pensacola, FL) in February 2017.

    Interview

    So I filled out an application and was called in for an interview. I was pretty excited. I dressed pretty nice and went to the interview. And my first impression was how bad it looked. The workers just look dead and some were standing around and gossiping. The kitchen was dirty and crowded. But I decided to go for it. The manager handed me a paper application and told me to fill it out. Once I finished I went to hand it to him and he told me to wait until he interviews the first guy. While i was sitting a older guy came and told the manager everything was horrible and he wouldnt be returning. Let me tell you. The interviewee that went before me was dressed horribly. Saggy pants. Black shirt. A big jacket. I'm not judging but that isn't proper! I sat and waited and watched his interview. They hired him. Then it was my turn. The manager came to me and told me he will be back and I waited 25 minutes and he never showed. So I walked out. And he called me a hour or so later. I didn't answer. That entire interview was unprofessional.

    Interview

    Easy interview. I was interviewed for the general manager, and she just asked me a few simple questions and had a short chat with me about my hobbies, and explained to me that they really needed good employees who would treat customers with respect. Interview took about 5 minutes.

    I got hired on the spot as a drive thru operator because she thought I had a clear loud voice.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Steak n Shake (South Bend, IN) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Two interviews were nessecary to get promoted to this position. Human Resources and the Division President. Everyone in upper management wants to see people succeed so it was more of a peep talk than an interview. Before hand there was a period where I was in an acting GM role. Too see if I could handle and enjoy the new position.
